Deforestation and forest degradation, through agricultural expansion, conversion to pastureland, infrastructure development, destructive logging, fires etc., account for nearly 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions, more than the entire global transportation sector and second only to the energy sector.

We invite you to join us for a Forum session as we unpack the value of trees, look at some global & local developments and discuss how South Africa, and especially the private sector, can change the way they value the tree supply chain.
